I am always thrilled to head back to Lake Placid for a wedding; and was especially excited about Jessica and Gary's!

Jess and I had been emailing for a while about their day, and the plan we put together was going to be fabulous! 

They had planned a very intimate gathering for their special day, which revolved around family and a celebration with all of their favorite people. And of course, lots of time to do bridal photos (love you guys for that!). I was so excited to be able to capture these wonderful memories. I love the more intimate weddings, and I could tell it was such a special thing for Jessica and Gary.

We started off with their first look and headed to a few of my favorite locations around Lake Placid. Then we headed over to their ceremony site, Woodlea Farms, and toured the grounds for some more beautiful images. (Sit back and get comfortable, there's an overload of photos in this blog!)

Special thanks again to my good friend and shooter Heather (Heather Ann Photography) for being a part of this one with me (and for keeping me awake for the long drive home!). :) 

Here's a few of the pro's that helped to make their wedding day special: 
Bridal Hair and Makeup: Katherine Elizabeth Salon
Bridal Gown: Jenny Yoo
Groom's Attire: Enzo Custom
Floral Arrangements: Lake Placid Flower and Gift Co.
Ceremony Location: Woodlea Farms
Officiant: The Bride's Aunt
Reception Location: Lake Placid Club Boat House
Cake: Cake Placid

Check out their day: 

We headed back outside during sunset and then again for some night shots. By the time we got out there after dark, it felt almost bitter cold! Special thanks to Heather, Gary and Jess who toughed it out along with me while I experimented with a few things to capture what you see below. I am really proud of these next images and so excited to share them all with you!

Congrats again to Jessica and Gary!! I had such a great time being a part of your wedding and getting to know your families throughout the day. 

Jessica and Gary will have a full gallery of their images available through the VIP section of our website soon. If you want to see them, you'll have to ask 'em. :)

P.S. - Hey, since you're here, why not to comment and leave some love for this gorgeous couple!
